Half January 2006 we arrive on the north coast of Busuanga, an island of
group north of Palawan island. In Maricaban Bay we are very much welcomed
in the 'El Rio y Mar' resort where 'Tequila Mike' is carefully starting
Bay Cruising Club. There are seven moorings in de bay now, on one of
which we can tie up 'Alexandra' for a small fee per night. In the bar,
terrace and restaurant of the peaceful resort they have special
facilities and prizes for 'yachties'. We also get a lot of info about
the Calamian area so that we are well prepared to do a safe and
interesting cruising along Busuanga, Coron and Culion islands.
The church in little town Culion is a remnant of the
Spanish era and the view from the church over the reef is magnificent.
The Calamian islands are less densely populated as the other areas in
the Philippines, but is still fascinating to sail along the huts, houses
and bancas of the villages. As everywhere in the Philippines the 'jeepneys'
transport people and goods and the town of Coron is the centre where
most of the tourists start. The huge Bay of Coron is famous for the
Japanese wrecks that are daily visited by scuba divers.
